no we did improve when Havertz came on - we finally were able to pass the ball out of the back.. Yes we have the players to compare - This wasnt the strongest city team we have ever played.. In the past they would come with Aguero , Silva, Yaya, Kompany all world class players.. Foden / Rodri/ Jesus / Silva (bernardo) arent at the same level.. I would argue Havertz/Lukaku /Ziyech should be able to compete . The way we set-up it has been tough for our forward players  - which has been one of the criticisms of TT ever since he took over. 

Under what tactics though? 

I think the real issue is there is not enough tactics & ability to make a change when necessary. 

We can't just loft it in & hope Lukaku converts it. 

To beat city you have to eliminate their midfield & wingers & disrupt their rhythm. You do that by sitting back & playing long balls. Not going at their rhythm & not playing end to end football.

The players were woeful but Tuchel should have seen what needed to be done.

Which is exactly what we did for 90 minutes and lost
